“Palm oil is difficult to get more expensive because other vegetable oils are available in competitive price,” unnamed traders mentioned.

India and China – two biggest palm oil importers could decrease their demands for the next several months because their stock also increases.

Data in MPOB showed that palm oil consumption in the country increased almost twice month on month to be 494.000 tons in September, as Anilkumar Bagani, Research Chief in Sunvin Group, vegetable trader in Mumbai, said.

The increasing stock could be a loss for palm oil globally though it is predicted that the production would be decreasing because of El Nino phenomenon. El Nino that makes hot weather and drought could be the reason to get palm oil more expensive. (T2)
